Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation

DAR File No.: 42737
Filed: 03/29/2018 06:03:28 PM

NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION

Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Section 35A-1-104 authorizes the Department of Workforce Services (Department) to adopt rules. Subsection 35A-1-104(4) authorizes the Department to establish eligibility standards for its programs. Subsection 35A-4-502(1)(b) authorizes the Department to make rules necessary for the administration of the Employment Security Act. Section 35A-4-208 defines wages for purposes of the Act, but the statutory definition does not fully address every circumstance in which a payment to a worker might arguably constitute a wage. This rule therefore further defines what constitutes wages in harmony with the statute.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

No written comments have been received during the last five years.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

This rule is necessary to more fully define the terms found in the statute to assist Department employees and the public in knowing which payments are considered wages for purposes of determining unemployment insurance benefits and contributions. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
